Keystone Media Awards

The Keystone Media Awards – formerly called the Keystone Press Awards before merging with the PAPME Media Awards in 2020 – reinforce excellence by individuals in the news media profession, by recognizing journalism that consistently provides relevance, integrity, and initiative in serving readers and audiences, and faithfully fulfills its First Amendment rights/responsibilities. Further, the Keystone Media Awards stimulate journalists to improve their craft and ultimately improve their community.

Congratulations to the 2021 Professional Keystone Media Awards Winners!

Due to ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, there are currently no plans for an in-person awards event in 2021.  A video celebrating the winners of the 2021 Professional Keystone Media Awards will be available in the coming weeks.

Special awards and certificates in displayable folders were mailed to winning news organizations in mid-May. Due to unprecedented demand for plaques since the award winners were announced on April 30, our supply of plaques has been exhausted.  Orders are now on back order.  Please check this page later this summer when an order form will be made available again. In the meantime, we apologize for the delay and inconvenience.
